MY CABLE AIN"T WORKING!!! I need to get my e-mail and internet from my comp!

Geeze....well with the new system e-mail requires your domain name(ex. mail.microsoft.com) well I USE ROAD RUNNER and the stuff for that is hawaii.rr.com or the e-mail is (person@hawaii.rr.com) so I have tried that and mail.rr.com....NONE WORK!

HELP! Here is my info

Running IE
Using Macs MAIL program
Name: Kiyoakisama
Password: **********
USually I put: pop-server.hawaii.rr.com(when they ask for the POP server in OE)
and I put: SMTP-server.hawaii.rr.com(when they want to know about SMTP)

I am using a ROUTER and that is why I need the extra .hawaii.rr.com after smtp-server....usually I would just put smtp-server....yet I have to add the stuff to make it smtp-server.hawaii.rr.com now.

HELP! How do I work it? its harder then OE and IE and I can't see the web or use my e-mail stuff...HELP!

PLEASE HELP ME!!!!

Read Apples TIL

DHCP Client ID is not a feature of Mac OS X Public Beta.

My cable connection evidently requires this for e-mail.
Your's probably does too.

I'd be pissed off at @home if they used DHCP servers. I already complain to them all the time at how often I lose service. If I had to go through DHCP, I'd complain more. And if @home ever decides to go to DHCP, I'll complain.

But this may be a work around. If you connect through DHCP, set it up manually. Boot to 9, go to the TCP/IP control panel, and copy all information(IP, router, DNS servers, etc.), then put all that info into X.

Secondly, when it says domain name, that would be like http://www.apple.com. A domain name is a registered name that when someone types it in a web browser, it goes directly to your ip address. So if you don't have one, then don't put one in there.
